    Users can now align images in their posts.

    This can be done by adding align="left", align="center" or align="right" to the image.

  • Audio blog: Make voice choosable
    Users now have the ability to choose a female voice for their audio blogs.

    Users can choose this option on audio blog settings under the advanced setting.

  • GitHub Backup for Team Blogs
    We have activated the GitHub backup for team blogs as well.

    - To activate Github, go to your team blog dashboard.

    Ex: <DOMAIN>/dashboard
    - Then click on ๐—›๐—ฎ๐˜€๐—ต๐—ป๐—ผ๐—ฑ๐—ฒ ๐—š๐—ถ๐˜๐—›๐˜‚๐—ฏ ๐—”๐—ฝ๐—ฝ

    - You will be redirected to GitHub. Go ahead and select the repository you want to backup your posts to.
    Note: You can also select multiple repositories so that each blog can have its own backup repository.

    - You will now be redirected to hashnode. On this screen, you connect your repository to your blog. With that, you're able to backup each blog to different repositories.

    - Then you will be redirected to the backup tab and can start backing up your posts!
